    What should I do?
     
  2. Are you feeding them extra calcium in their diet, like oyster shell?

    I have been feeding them extra egg feed and give them most of our scraps... I just purchased DUMOR layer feed yesterday. I'm hoping that works.

    I would not worry too much. I have had some lay at 5 months and others at 11 months. Make sure they have a nice nest and put a golf ball in it. Sometimes they sit in there and practice.

    First question is - are you certain that these birds are, in fact, pullets? If not, your wait for eggs could be a whole lot longer.
    At six months of age, there is no reason for concern that they have not yet begun to lay - as long as you are providing a good environment and proper diet they will lay in their own time.
